Five first place awards in a statewide competition went to the Cayuga Community College chapter of Phi Beta Lambda, a national organization for business students. Cayuga also placed second in four events and third in another.

The competition was hosted by the Phi Beta Lambda State Leadership Conference in late April. Cayuga participants were business and computer science students from the Fulton Center. Their honors included:

? First place, community service project: Thomas Barnes, Gregory Harrison, Brian Swenszkowski

? First place, computer concepts: Robert Manning

? First place, Java programming: Thomas Barnes

? First place, multimedia presentation: Stefanie Osborn and Erin Smith

? First place, Who's Who in NY PBL, Erin Smith

? Second place, human resource management: Stefanie Osborn

? Second place, prepared public speaking: Richard Cuyler, Jr.

? Second place, sports management/marketing: Gregory Harrison

? Third place, impromptu speaking: Brian Swenszkowski

In addition, two Cayuga graduates who transferred to SUNY Oswego took honors. Competing for Oswego, James Middleton won firsts in business communications and hospitality management. Kelly Lyons took second in computer concepts and third in accounting principles.

Professor Laurie Noll, a member of the college's business faculty, is the Phi Beta Lambda chapter adviser and former state chair.

First- and second-place winners of the statewide contest can advance to final competition at the National Leadership Conference to be held this summer.
